Souq Waqif is one of the must-see and visit places in Doha. It is one of the largest marketplace selling local goods, arts & craft, gold jewellery and more. This market has been around for hundreds of years but over the years, many renovations have been made and turned the market to a more modern area but still preserving the original style of the marketplace. It is most popular during the night time as not many people are out by day due to the heat in Doha.
Once we arrived, everything was lit up. There were crowds everywhere with tourists and locals out and about enjoying the cool evening weather. On either side of the markets, there are stores selling local craft to drinks and food. As you walk inside the buildings, there are many alleys with different stores selling various items. They are usually grouped together making visitors easier to find what they need.
We ventured around the alleys and found some interesting store in particular the gold stores. I had a look at some and the gold was sooooo light, like a piece of paper. The design was very good and stylist which I thought was pretty amazing. A small ring for example would have cost around $150-200AUD.
We ended up having dinner at Parisa which I have shared before on here as we had read some reasonable reviews and the entrance of the restaurant already won brownie points. It is recommended that you visit during the evening when all the action is happening with less heat. Also, the prices of things may be a bit more expensive than some others outside of the markets as this is a tourist area.
大家好，今天想帶大家到多哈的Souq Waqif 市場. 這個市場是當地最有名的還有最受遊客歡迎. 這個市場已經有幾百年歷史而近幾年就慢慢裝修了摩登一點但有保持多哈的特色. 在晚上,這裡非常熱鬧因為白天的時候，天氣非常熱熱所以很少人會出去所以晚上大家都會出去. 市場裡有有賣不同當地手作的紀念品，食物，飲料，黃金，香水等等. 有機會去多哈一定要來這個市場逛逛.
